Keywords: 3-Imino-, 3-propylamino-, 3-propylimino-, 3-oxo-, 3-thioxo-substituted 4-ethyl-2-propyl-2, 3-dihydro-pyrrolo[3, 4-b]quinoline- 1, 9-diones, 4-methyl-, 4-propyl-substituted-3, 3-dichloro-thieno[3, 4-b]quinoline-1, intramolecular H-bonding, magnetic ani


The preparation, spectral properties and structure elucidations of the hitherto undocumented 3-oxo-,  3-thioxo-, 3-propylimino-, 3-imino-, and 3-propylamino- derivatives of 4-ethyl-2-propyl-2,3-dihydro-pyrrolo[3,4-b]quinoline-1,9-dione are described. Mechanistic aspects relating particularly to the formation of the latter two unprecedented products are considered. Magnetic anisotropic effects (deshielding/line broadening of signals) are exhibited by the α-methylene protons of the 4-ethyl moiety in the 1H NMR spectra of the first four of the above, and in several 3,3-dichloro-thieno[3,4-b]quinoline-1,9-diones and intramolecular H-bonded, 1,2-dialkyl-4-oxo-3-quinolinecarboxylic acid precursor substrates.
